According to the data, in the 18-24 age group, chlamydia proved to be the leading STI consultation. Consultations for genital warts were second, bacterial vaginosis was third, while consultations for gonorrhoea and trichamoniasis rounded up the list in 4th and 5th place. In the 25-34 age group, chlamydia was also the leading STI consultation. Gonorrhoea consultations came second, genital warts third, with consultations for bacterial vaginosis and NSU following in 4th and 5th place. Both the 34-44s and 45-54s did the most consultations for chlamydia. For both age groups, online consultations for gonorrhoea came second. Both age group categories also had herpes virus as the fifth most common STI consultation. Consultations for genital warts in the 55 - 64 age group topped STI consultations. Chlamydia proved to be the second most common consultations in this age group, while, like the 35-44s and 45-54 year olds, herpes was the fifth most common STI consultation. NSU was the most common STI consultation for the 65 and overs. Genital warts was the second most common consultation for this age group, herpes virus was the third most common, while consultations for chlamydia and bacterial vaginosis rounded out fourth and fifth spot.
Analysing the stats, it is perhaps no surprise that chlamydia received the most consultations for sexually transmitted infections. Chlamydia is the single most commonly reported STI in Europe. According to ECDC Europe, the highest infection rates are in sexually active young people - between 5% and 10% of them carry or have been carrying chlamydia. This is evident through the findings.
It is also worth taking into account that the symptoms of chlamydia are in most cases not apparent, with a person infected with the STI often not aware that they have the infection, until they get a medical check-up. When symptoms are visible, it usually varies from pain when urinating, unusual discharge, pain in the abdominal area or swelling of the genitals. Chlamydia can be successfully treated with the right medication prescribed by the specialist.
